There are some changes in the works for Summer PEIMS. The two big ones deal with the new calendar minutes and accountability measures (districts will now pick three that they will be rated on primarily). We’re ready for all of it so you can be too. We’re also here to answer any questions you might have. And don’t forget: the deadline for Summer PEIMS is June 22nd. It’s going to be a great summer!
The Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) is in full swing for all local education agencies (LEAs). We’ve been working hard to make sure you have a smooth, seamless experience submitting your OCR data. Have a question? Let us know.
Every year TxEIS holds a week-long New Consultant Training session. It’s a crash course in the software. But it’s also an opportunity for consultants to get together. Because TxEIS is a collaborative effort. And you, our clients, reap the reward of this cooperative effort. TxEIS Knows Texas. We’re here to answer your questions — fully trained!
TxEIS makes sure you’re secure. One of the ways we do this is to get folks from the TCC TxEIS Data Center, iTCCS and ESC-20, as well as, of course, TxEIS, together quarterly to proactively discuss things like ransomeware and DDOS attacks, and how to prevent or deal with them. TxEIS has your best interest at heart. Call us and let us know what you’re concerned about.
The new, much anticipated Help has begun its roll-out. It’s currently available in Scheduling and Test Scores, but look for it in many more applications by this summer. Onward and upward. Let us know if you have questions.
Don’t forget that you have until the 30th of March to get your Affordable Care Act information returns in to the IRS. Call or email with any questions you might have. We’re here for you.
The Texas Computer Cooperative would like to welcome our new Associate Director, DK Bailey. DK comes from ESC-10 in Dallas where he was the Director of Technology/Chief Technology Officer. He brings extensive private and public sector professional experience in technology leadership and strategic planning and a strong commitment to public education and the success of our work as ESCs and the TCC.
One more to go. The TASBO is a big one, as you know. And once again we’ll be up in Austin from February 27th to March 3rd (March already? That’s madness.). The booth will be set up on Tuesday night (2/28) and all day Wednesday. We’re in spots 517/616. Come by and talk iTCCS, TxEIS, CareerPortal or anything else for that matter. You’ll be glad you did. See you soon!
Erin Schofield took the opportunity at TCEA Exposition and Convention last week to snap a selfie with TCC consultants/clients, Guillermo Valdez and Victor Rios — both from ESC-1 — for the Selfie with Staff or a Client, another 50th anniversary event. As usual, it’s nice to see everyone so happy. Thanks, Erin, Guillermo and Victor.
